How to Get Rid of Calluses and Corns with Apple Cider Vinegar, Lemon and Bread

Corns and calluses are hardened and relatively thick skin layers, which actually work as a protection for the skin when the skin is exposed to friction and pressure.

They can develop anywhere on the skin, but in most cases they appear on the hands, toes, feet and fingers.

The following is a short list of completely natural remedies that can help and guide for how to get rid of calluses and corns with bread and lemon. These remedies are very simple yet extremely effective.

Apple Cider Vinegar and Bread Remedy

Ingredients needed:

  • a piece of bread
  • 1 cup of Apple cider vinegar (you can also use white distilled vinegar)
  • pumice stone
  • medical or adhesive tape
  • thin fabric or gauze

Instructions:

Treat the callus gently with a pumice stone. Take a small bowl and pour half a cup of apple cider vinegar in it. Take half slice of bread and soak it in it. When the bread is soaked well, apply it directly on the callus and use the gauze to wrap the area. Place the tape on top of it. In addition, you can also mash the bread to get a paste and apply it on the affected area.

How can this remedy help you?

The bread is used for proper application. You can use a sponge too, but the bread is more effective. Vinegar has strong anti-fungal and antibacterial properties. In addition, the high acidity level can soften the problematic part of the skin.

How to Get Rid of Calluses and Corns with Lemon Paste

Ingredients needed:

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • baking soda
  • medical or adhesive tape
  • gauze

Instructions:

  1. Mix the olive oil with the lemon juice. Add the baking soda to the mixture and mix until you get a paste.
  2. Store the mixture in a jar and keep it away from sunlight.
  3. Apply to the problematic area and put a gauze on top of it.
  4. You can apply this mixture whenever you want.

How can this paste help?

Baking soda is rich in sodium bicarbonate, which helps us remove dead skin cells. It is also known for its anti-fungal and antibacterial properties. On the other hand, lemon juice has a very high acidity level, which means that it has the ability to soften the skin where the corns and calluses are located. Finally, olive oil acts as a natural moisturizer and balances the astringent properties of lemon juice, keeping your skin smooth.
